||Anthropometric study of Algerian farmers
||June 2002, Vol.29, No.6, p.331-341. Illus. 26 ref.
||An anthropometric study involving 36 body dimensions was carried out in a population of Algerian date-palm farmers. Effects of age were studied, and data of Algerian farmers and farmers from both developed and developing countries were compared. It was found that both stature and weight correlated significantly with many body dimensions. In addition, age was found to affect body height and weight. Moreover, it was found that stature and weight have increased with time: currently, farmers are taller and heavier than farmers of the 1960s. Algerian farmers are also taller and heavier than farmers of many developing countries. However, when compared with the farmers of developed countries, they are shorter and lighter.
